    I have always found Ambre Sultan to be a bit anemic, with a mini-me amber base and more dry spice than anything. I tried one of the new batches recently and its even more frail than before - I was never a fan but its now dropped even further down my amber list. I don't wear LDDM much, but to me its more dynamic, rich and luscious (with that dry feel) than Ambre Sultan.

    I think they're both great. I've probably got more of a soft spot for SL fragrances though and have voted for AS.

    I didn't want to start a new thread, so I thought I'd resurrect this one. I've got a sample of LDDM on one hand and Ambre Sultan on the other, both beautiful and intriguing. What are you current opinions?

    I found Ambre Sultan more unisex with L'Air falling on the masculine side.

    They're quite different scents. The warmth of AS is more an amber vanillic soft warmth, whereas L'Air is spicier in a peppery way.

    I went with Ambre Sultan, but I certainly wouldn't mind cuddling up to someone in the Tauer.

    I don't like that slightly sweet vanilla thing in LDDM. Trivia - Luca Turin got married wearing LDDM.

    Ambre Sultan is the only fragrance I regret buying. It smells horrible.

    Both are difficult to wear but after testing both, I chose the enigmatic L'Air.
    AS is too much amber for me. L'DDM is very evocative and truly paints a picture for me.

    That's what I like about L'air, it's very mysterious and vivid with the image it projects. On the other hand, I like the dense warmth of AS, this is going to be a tough call!

    I'm wearing AS today for the first time - snagged a 3/4 bottle off Ebay. It's great! I'd love a chance to try LDDM but buying a bottle online (a hundred-odd squid) is a bit too big of a hurdle for me right now and the chance of a bottle showing up on Ebay are - shall we say - slight...

    I like LDDM much better because it's not as syrupy dense and heavy as Ambre Sultan. Ambre Sultan gets kind of nasty on me but I havbe to agree with others that there's also something about LDDM that makes me uncomfortable when I wear it.

    they're both great bu LDDM is way more challenging. That's why I voted for it.

    I got a decant of LDDM just because of this reason.

    They are both worth having, but I enjoy AS slightly more than LDDM.

    There is no other option.
    l'Air du Desert Marocain is the absolute winner.

    The current formulation of Ambre Sultan is weak and personally, it doesn't do anything for me.
    l'Air is like an orgasm to my nose.

    Hmmz, I can easily do 5 sprays of l'Air from the 50ml, when I go clubbing.
